We love all our local artists—but jewelry designer Rebecca Schiffman has really hit home. The native New Yorker draws inspiration from the Upper East Side to create jewelry mimicking the designs she’s seen on various building façades in the neighborhood. Just some of the architectural motifs she’s used in her UES collection include earrings and pendants with flowers as seen on 88th and 92nd streets buildings, and a racing hare and flower shields from Park Avenue buildings. An expert in ancient jewelry techniques (she has another collection named IMK, the Ill-Made Knight, after Sir Lancelot), Schiffman’s sterling silver pieces bring us back to another era—one where residents can proudly display their building’s crest on their sleeve and around their neck. Check out her site here and show some local love by heading over to her kickstarter.
